You should know that this Saturday, September 14th at 1300 hours, we will be celebrating a street renaming activity in memory of the late Rev. Mario De Jesus.

Rev. De Jesus was a community minister, advocate, and outspoken leader for senior citizens, and the community as a whole.

As the City Councilmember representing the area of Soundview, I was able to obtain approval from the City Council to rename the corner of Randall Avenue & Soundview Avenue.

The street renaming ceremony will begin at 1300 hours and will be a family festival filled with music, food, games, and entertainment for children throughout the day.

All are welcome and encouraged to come as we pay tribute to Rev. Mario De Jesus and celebrate his life. Elected officials, community leaders, family & friends of Rev. De Jesus and anyone else who would like to come together to remember him.

I am Councilmember Rev. Rubén Díaz, Sr. and this is what you should know.
